Hello Ken

There has been lots of salt on the road around here so not needed the TC. Missing driving her like you wouldn't believe. I re-bled the slave and she was leaking from the bell housing. I have the tunnel etc out ready to do the change over.

Plus I have been busy with the Vitesse and the F :oops: Chassis is very nearly stripped :D

Darren

Ok Darren, will liaise.

Oh, forgot to mention. I had the VED classification changed to the correct 'historic vehicle' status and the DVLA gave me a nice new no cost VED disk, that was nice of them wasn't it :D

Well she seems to be quite content to run without any hassle now. Today saw me dodging a few scattered snowflakes to get down to the business of removing the rest of the interior trim in readiness for cleaning and painting. I also had to sort out one of the clips fastening to the 'pull up' bar of the door handle. Not very exciting stuff but all progress.

Today also saw me help my mate at the flats where the garage is located to strip, clean and re-assemble his Yam Dragstar kustom kruiser rear brake. Brought back lots of memories :D

Hi Jim, I guess it hasn't really progressed very far, lacking in time, energy and motivation I'm afraid.

Project SB under new management as of today!

A big thank you to Ken who is a gentleman and a scholar!

My youngest, Joe, is absolutely delighted, we will continue the good work Ken has started (no Vauxhall engines in this one - PROMISE!)
